While the Keith McMillen Softstep 2 may not necessarily be willing to lend a hand, its certainly able to lend a foot. The unit affords users foot control over all connected MIDI hardware. After programming the unit via KMI control-mapping software, simply connect it to the desired MIDI devices and it is ready to go, with or without a computer.
The Softstep 2 works with its corresponding software program to manipulate a host of different parameters, allowing for feats of unprecedented control—pun intended. Each of the device’s ten keypads incorporate technology that allows for different interactions unique to each key. These include X/Y, clockwise and counterclockwise rotation, and pressure sensitivity.
The Softstep 2 can be used to conveniently control all manner of parameters, including panning, sample triggering, effects, levels, looping, and transport operations. It can also be used to control external MIDI hardware in tandem with the KMI MIDI Expander.
The MIDI Expander enables the KMI Softstep, 12 Step, or QuNeo to control external MIDI hardware via simple MIDI in/out ports. Additionally, the MIDI Expander can be used portably with any KMI controller, with or without a computer.
